Alabama Hills

Early morning scene at Alabama Hills Camp, CA.

Lone Pine Peak (12,944 ft) on left, Mount Whitney (14,505 ft) on right.

Alabama Hills Camp Two, CA - looking East
This area is a great place to climb or ride a mountain bike.

Sunset on the Inyo's.

Alabama Hills Camp Two, looking west as the sun rises on the Sierra Nevada. The Randolph Scott movie "The Tall T" was filmed about 30 yards to the south of this camp. Just to the front and left of our truck is the location of the bridge over the great chasm that Cary Grant and Sam Jaffe crossed in the movie Gunga Din.

In the White Mountains

We drove into the White Mountains to check on snow conditions. Did not originally plan on coming up here and sure wish I would have brought along my tire chains.

Returning to CA 168 and dry pavement.
